Letter from The President: Honourable Enjoyments

Fri, 10 Sep 2004 Source: J. A. Fukuor/Daily Dispatch

Countrymen and women, loyalists and opponents,

I recently read with dismay a new report attributed to an ?against? MP, who claims that being a lawmaker in Sikaman is like being sentenced to four years in the shackles of poverty. According to the MP, Hon. Akova, a lot of our lawmakers enter the legislative assembly rich and leave poor. I don?t know whether Mr. Akova is using his own example or he is just propounding a theory he cannot prove.

If he is using his own example, I am sorry to say that Mr. Akova has wasted his time in parliament. If he?s poorer now than he was when he first entered parliament, I think Mr. Akova is a failed politician, who is so inept that he can?t even use his position to enrich himself. Politicians the world over enrich themselves whiles in office and I have little choice than to feel sorry for Mr. Akova for trying to be the first clean politician in the history of the world.

On the other hand, however, if Mr. Akova is just trying to throw dust into our eyes by propounding a false theory about how politics impoverishes people, I guess he should be hanged by the balls for deceiving the whole nation.
